"Slow switch ramp up?"

Can anyone help me with this? It's basically converting a square wave to a triangle, you're slowing down the ramp up. Basically I want to hit the switch and have a delayed onset of it... I'd use a capacitor, but I want it to be linear. I've tried just using a standard square-to-triangle converter but it didn't work too well. Any ideas?

Sounds too me like you want to push on a switch and have a delayed
reaction to a circuit. If this is the case you want a one shot multivibrator.

Use a constant current source to charge the capacitor. That will make the ramp linear.
Wouldnt I need to then recharge it every time I wanted to flip the switch on or off?
